Please, please, please ........... (don't ever say that I didn't say "Please"!).

Would the person who put up the recent 'Pigpen Lookalike Competition' photo/article please re-submit.

Have recently been hit by a virus (No Althea, not the type that you catch in the Go-Go bars in Bangkok - a computer virus). Luckily all my dead shows/toons are backed-up on (duplicate) external hard-drives so no damage there. But I try and accumulate as many dead photos (Pigpen especially, Jerry, Bob, Phil, Billy the (one) drummer, Keith, Donna and baby Zack photos - yeah, even Mickey too - and Top Cat (Constanten) and, more recently, Bear too) in a 'Dead Photos' folder which I use for screen savers, slide-shows, etc., I back this up to CD every now and then but the virus caught me at a bad time - just before I was about to back-up a load of recent photos. The virus was so bad, the computer shop couldn't save any of my data, it was all lost in the re-formatting process.

So, if anyone has any good, recent Dead (& related photos e.g. the Skull & Roses patch recently on Lossless Legs) that they want to show off - here's a perfect opportunity.

Incidentally, without wishing to pass the buck (much!), it was the young step-daughter who was in the hot seat when the virus struck - I dread to think what she was checking out at the time !!!!!

The moral of the story - even with what was supposed to be good anti-virus protection (Avast) - it's a good idea to back-up everything and on a reasonably frequent basis. Have your shows/music on disc or mp3 (yikes) player, but have copies on external hard-drives or whatever - just in case.

Cheers all, thanks in anticipation and all that.

I have never in my life caught a virus in a go-go bar in Bangkok. "You" indeed!

I do, however, live in fear of the other kind of virus. Thanks for the reminder! Oh, and stay out of those go-go bars :-)

it was supposed to read "like you (as in 'me') catch ....", not "like you (as in 'you') catch ...."

Ne'er mind - no offence intended (but you knew that anyway!).

I thought you were British. Wouldn't it then be, "A virus one catches whilst in a go-go bar in Bangkok"?

"I thought you were British" - correct.

"Wouldn't it then be, "A virus one catches whilst in a go-go bar in Bangkok"?" - correct.

"You Win Ergain" (twice) - whoops, apols for the mis-spell, but this is 2011 (one doesn't speak like that anymore does one?) and I am retarded, err, I mean retired - you know: the faculties start to go at this time of life (assuming I had them in the first place) .

Best wishes (see you in the usual Go-Go).

that'll do for starters.

Thanks LIA.

When the time comes, I trust you manage to sneak into heaven before the devil knows you're dead - or any FOTD's.

Cheers,

That's a pretty cool review of the 5/7/69 show. "It sounded as if they were having a hard time finding each other's heads...."

I agree, pretty cool. Fun "in the time review" to read. Matches up well with Even S. Hunt's review.

Good you posted a link to part 1 of the PigPen look a like contest. I havent found that one in the collection I have, yet. The comments in part 2 are priceless. I would love to see a pic of the winner.
